Submission windows

To better plan the Committees' workload, ECHA has established specific windows for submitting applications for authorisation. Uploading your application within these windows ensures the minimum processing time for your application by ECHA and its Committees.

The table below shows the substance names and their corresponding latest submission window (i.e. the last window before the latest application date). For certain substances, the latest application date does not fall into  a submission window (for instance Chromium trioxide: the latest application date is 21 March 2016 and its latest submission window is 8-22 February 2016).

You can benefit from the transitional arrangements of Art. 58(1)(c)(ii) of REACH if you submit your application to ECHA in the latest or in any of the earlier submission windows. For instance, for Ammonium dichromate (EC 232-143-1) you can submit an application in the 8-22 February 2016 submission window or in any of the earlier submission windows (such as the 7-21 May 2015 submission window).

To ensure that the application is processed smoothly, ECHA recommends that you submit the application in one of the windows before the latest submission window. See Q&A 571 and 572 for more details.
